Comment Contest Winners
|Jesse Sage Noonan
May I have a drum roll please? The April/May Comment Contest Winner is Jesse Sage Noonan! Congratulations, Jesse! I asked the Jesse what inspires her to write. She says, “On a good day: a great novel will spark the desire to craft sentences or explore ideas for stories. On a bad day: guilt.” You can read Jesse’s wonderful piece about a memorable concert here.
The winner of the June/July Comment Contest is Ethel Watson!
Congratulations, Ethel! I asked Ethel about her writing practice. She says, “I like to write early in the morning at the computer, especially if I have hit on an idea or solution that I want to get down quickly. Often, though, I prefer to write in longhand in one of my many notebooks — writing in longhand is more like meditation, and my notebooks are home to many of the writings from my Writing Pad classes and a source of inspiration. “
You can read Ethel’s charming pieces about motherly talents and what’s in her refrigerator here and here.
I hope to see you soon either on this blog or at Writing Pad West or East!
